We sent an email out earlier that referenced a new CA law.
We would like to clarify our new policy.
This is not a new law but instead relates to a California Supreme Court legal decision that will influence current laws that exist regarding independent contract work within the State of California. Additionally, 2 new bills are in the California Legislature regarding independent contractors. We believe Language Services businesses may be deeply affected by this change in California towards independent business professionals. (See the below links).
Based upon this current court decision and the possibility of changes in the definition regarding independent contractors, we have decided to require professionals who subcontract with us to be operating within a business structure of either LLC, or Corporation (S or C) if they legally reside and/or do business with us within the State of California. Many of our linguists already have done this, and we know that other interpreting companies are instituting similar policies or plan to do so.
We recommend that you consider which type of entity best fits your business goals.
We will be implementing this change beginning at the end of June, 2019.
